voters, 56% say they felt better about mitt romney after the debate. 11% say they felt worse. 32% say they had no change in their opinion. as for the president, 13% of those polled came away with a better impression. 17% felt worse about the president. 69% felt exactly the same about president obama. >>> you left your reactions on our facebook page. the problem with this debate is that it keeps going past their time limit and mitt romney wasn't clear on what he would do for the economy. so for me it was a tie. while another said not only did romney insult educators but the poor. and president obama wasn't a winner either. he lacked aggression. he we'd like you to leave your comments by going to our facebook page wusa9. >>> the economy and jobs will be an important part of the election. jessica is here with our local jobs picture and it's pretty good compared to the rest of the country. >> this is another situation where we're saying thank goodness we live in the washington region. the latest unemployment figures are out. let's take a look. at 5.5%, the washington metro area continues
an advantage in the way the non-rules are in this debate tonight. and i also think that mitt romney has come off a series of really easy debates. we have to remember, mitt romney triumphed in a republican presidential field that was the worst republican presidential field in the history of the republican party. those are the debates he won. he was the one on the stage who did not look outright insane, compared to the rest of them. that isn't going to work for him tonight. he's going against the best debater mitt romney has ever been up against in his life. this is going to be, i think, a really great debate. >> preparing for this, i went back and looked at some of the 1994 debates between romney and kennedy, looking at some of that to see, you know, how does he deal with a democratic opponent? we've seen him debate a lot of republicans, but not a lot of democrats. and if it's half as fun as it was between him and ted kennedy, we are in for a very, very fun night ahead. lawrence, thank you for that, particularly on the rules. i think that was a really important point. we'll talk with you agai
appears to have won the debate, jacqueline? >> reporter: dave, republican challenger mitt romney is expecting to see a boost in the poles, a survey taken by cnn shows mitt romney a clear winner. an aggressive mitt romney criticized president barack obama's record saying big government is not working. mitt romney says the middle- class cannot afford four more years under obama. >> the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. they are buried, they are just being crushed. >> president barack obama defended his achievements and challenged his plans saying there are not any details. >> at some point, people have to ask themselves, is the reason governor mitt romney keeping all these plans secret because they are too good? >> that he had hard time driving the debate and another comment by mitt romney has public television supporters upset. >> i'm sorry, jim, i am going to stop pbs, i like big bird and i like you too but i am not going to keep spending money on things borrow money from china. >> it is all about big bird. and coming up, we are doing some big facts
? >> no, it just means -- [inaudible]. a failure at the debate last night would have killed romney. no, it just means he's back in business. we know that -- needs a shot of coffee or something, that the president needs to come back. dagen: you let your opponent think you are kind of -- and second debate your opponent is too confident and you come back -- i'm just saying. >> what you are saying -- i don't know where you got this, but this is what i told my wife last night, you wait before this 90 minutes is over, he's got a whopper, and before i knew it, it was all over and i never saw the whopper. dagen: the whopper i'm saying will be the second debate. >> no, you don't take gambles like that. that's not well thought out. there's no rhyme or reason for a person as talented and knows the facts, he's on the campaign trail, he is good, good, good, and mitt romney, you know, was very low expectations, very few things that he says is the same as what he said before. he's been inconsistent. but i've always said mitt romney comes out of central casting. a class b movie actor, give him any scr
will probably change his strategy for the next debate. governor romney and his running mate paul ryan are holding a rally right now in the battleground state of virginia. we'll go there live in a moment. that's trace at begins on stage. today, the president was back on the campaign trail, too. he told a crowd in denver the guy he faced off against last night was not the real governor romney. >> he said that he doesn't even know that there is such laws that encourage outsourcing. he says that if it's true he must need a new account stand. [ laughter ] now, we know for sure it was not the real mitt romney because he seems to be doing just fine with his current accountant. >> the romney campaign fired back, quote: president obama offered no defense of his record and no vision for the future. president obama simply offered more false attacks and renewed his call for job-killing tax hikes. earlier today, the president's senior campaign advisor david axelrod said this about the debate. the president's never satisfied with his performance. he is always challenging himself. and he will revie
romney, the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice-presidential, are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six, roughly 15-minute segments, with two-minute answers for the first question, then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means. but i made the final selections. for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission per the candidates. the subjects, as i announce in advance, will be three on the economy, and one each on health care, the role of government, and government, with an emphasis throughout on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audience here in the hall has promised to remain silent. no cheers, applause, boos, hisses, among other noisy distracting things, 0 -- so we may all concentrate on what
romney has something to celebrate. in a cnn poll, 67% said romney won the first presidential debate. 25% think president obama was the victor. >> there were no real knockout punches thrown last night, more like a series of glancing blows with romney the aggressor on taxes, jobs, health care. putting the president really on the defensive. we're lucky to be joined by dana bash. >> i think you're right. it was a debate between a rusty president obama and a well rehearsed mitt romney. >> reporter: right out of the gate, it was clear, mitt romney came to play. >> the president has a view very similar to the view he had when he ran four years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle down government would work. >> reporter: president obama sounded a familiar alarm, warning of romney's been there, done that economics. >> the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> reporter: but whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it w

until the last half-hour of the debate. for the better part of the first hour, it was mitt romney who was pn offense, challenging the president's record, addressing him directly, accusing the president of misrepresenting mitt romney. toward the end, we heard mitt romney say, you are entitled to your own house and plain, but not your own facts. there was a fair amount of %+arring back and forth. generally speaking, there demeanor's seemed like, in mitt romney's case, he is prepared to be president, and president obama is struggling with some of the strains of being president with some of a rigid somewhat of a difficult campaign. a difficult campaign. -- with somewhat of a diffi remember when you said men are superior drivers? yeah. yeah. then how'd i get this...

it out of the park. 500 uncommitted voters were asked who won this debate. 46% said romney was the winner, while only 22% said that the president was the victor this time. as for their view of romney, the man who has been fighting to ensure that he relates to the average american, 56% of the polls said they had a better opinion of the former governor after this debate. what started out as cordial quickly became heated. >> his proposal calls for a $5 trillion tax cut on top of $2 trillion of additional spending for the military. and he is saying that he is going to pay for it by closing loopholes and deductions. he's been asked over 100 times how he would close those loophole, and he hasn't identified them. >> if the tax plan he described airplane tax plan i was asked to support, i'd say absolutely not. i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. i've said i won't put in place a tax cut that adds to the did deficit. >> five weeks before the election, he's saying the his big idea is never mind. >> my priority is jobs. there's nothing better. having more people working, earning more money, p
would be a tiny bit surprised if romney pulled ahead based on this debate alone. but between that and something else -- we have jobs figures coming out on friday morning and two more debates and things that could develop. it put -- and put romney on a path where he has a comeback where is the opposite happen that he lost badly, then you might really eat at a october surprise for him to come back. >> there seems to be is some debate that this was the as debate america actually wanted. some people say it was too dry and some people they finally we have a serious discussion of economic policy. which one was? >> i think it was more substantive than some of the primary debates. the critique is and it's describing their plans and so forth, you can double up substance but not necessarily a substance containing an honest impression of what your card in arguments are. these are two guys who are very data-driven. i don't either of them is an ideologue, unnecessarily. i think you saw that come through a stage. >> you are somebody does predictions and numbers as this race changed how you
's lead. the real mitt romney. there's been a lot of talk about last night's debate. who won, who lost. but the real debate last night was between mitt romney and mitt romney. and being so contradictory, mr. romney opened a huge line of attack for the president. not just for 90 minutes, but for the 33 days until this election. and today in a blistering speech, the president took full advantage of the opportunity that romney's dishonest performance invited. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy, the fellow on stage last night said he didn't know anything about that. the real mitt romney said we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms. but don't boo, vote. but the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. can't get enough of them. the mitt romney we all know invested in companies that were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries.
saying romney won the debate, but it was no game changer. and jared bernstein, msnbc contributor and former chief economist for vice president joe biden. bb, let me start with you. what are your thoughts? >> first of all, romney won a victory that was a victory of performance art built on a whole set of lies. i think people have counted up to 28 to 30 lies. and i actually think the president deserves some credit for at a couple of critical points holding romney accountable. it's a big victory to get romney to own voucher care as a replacement for medicare and the president also took romney on when he said no one over 65 will be affected because of the rebeautiful obamacare in fact as the president pointed out, seniorses will pay $600 more for prescription drugs and the medicare trust if you said will expire eight years sooner. secondly the president talked straight to 50 and 55-year-olds and said do you really want to replace medded care with voucher care? romney is now lashed to the idea. >> he definitely did. jared, let me go into the facts about the $5 trillion tax plan that r
front again, paul ryan and mitt romney taking the stage since last night's debate. that, for most accounts, was a big win for their campaign. was it enough to change the dynamic of the race 33 days before the election? let's go to jim acosta at the rally in fishersville, virginia. trace adkins, i guess, is going to perform there. they're getting ready for a big, big blowout. >> reporter: that's right, erin. they are blowing this day up. you could say this is a #winningday for the romney campaign. trace adkins is on stage. and we saw the evidence of this all day long from the gop nominee, when he got on board his campaign plane earlier this morning. he was already cruising at a higher altitude, erin, chatting up his campaign staff. there was a smile on his face. and, honestly, erin, i've been covering this campaign for a year and a half. this was one of the happit days that i've seen on the part of this campaign and its staff for some time. but you could tell that things were starting to change during the day, as the president was starting to mount that new offensive, going after m
dishonest debater to show up. that's what we got in mitt romney. what could the president have done differently? of course, we'll recalibrate and recalculate based on the mitt romney that showed up last night. we've got two more debates left. now we know what we're dealing with. we know that mitt romney will, in a split second, waulk away from the central policy of his entire economic plan because he knows it's bad politics. he has been campaigning on this $5 trillion tax cut since the beginning of the primaries. and last night he tried to walk away from it, because he knows he's going to have to tell the middle class that he's going to have to raise their taxes if he wants to pay for it. >> the $5 trillion cut, the president talked about that today. that was sort of the heart when you talk about him being honest, it comes down to the tax cuts. >> with well, there's plenty of other examples. >> let me play this one and get your reaction. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the rea
of mitt romney. here is how it looked this afternoon. [video clip] >> we also had our first debate last night. when i got onto the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. [laughter] but it couldn't have been mitt romney, because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he did not know anything about that. [laughter] the real mitt romney it says we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms. [boos] don't boo, vote. [applause] >> some of the beginning of this rally this afternoon. about five more minutes of your phone calls, your reaction to the debate, what you saw in denver. columbia, maryland, on the independent line. >> good afternoon. just a couple of observations. i just watched obamas rally in denver. i just sat there thinking, wow, where was this guy last night? i really wish he had been a little tougher on romney. i think he had opportunity after opportunity to check him, but he didn't. but i still think in the end obama i

. >> but there was a different take on the debate across the bay in walnut creek where the gop supporters convened. >> romney came out much stronger than obama figured he would. >> as the debate progressed, the mixed personality and his innate ability to have people trust in him came forward. >> mitt romney had the facts. obama was without the facts. >> quite frankly obama looked like he was flownderring. floppedderring. he -- flownderring. he didn't know what to say. >> that was one of the best debate performances in a generation. >> of course there is no way to really score tonight. it is all a matter of personal politics. reporting live in san francisco, leslie brinkley, abc7 news. >> thanks, leslie. and if you missed the debate you can still see it by going to abc7news.com. we have a link for you on the front page. >>> and mitt romney struck a nerve with social media when he said he would eliminate the subsidee for the public broadcast system. >> i am going to stop the subsidee to pbs and other things. i like pbs. i like big bird. >> somebody started a fire big bird twitter account. in a half hour they h
already this morning after last night's debate. strong showing by romney who criticized the president on the economy. the pair also brought the sluggish economy with romney promising to close tax loopholes and limit deductions. mr. obama says that plan will hurt the struggling middle class. >> the president: it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. the it is math, arithmetic. >> pundits this morning are saying romney's aggressive perform was what he needed. >> -- performance was what he needed. >>> a poll conducted last night immediately after the debate found 67% of registered voters went for mitt romney. 25% went for president obama. cnn conducted the poll with 430 americans. >>> next debate takes play week from today in kentucky when vice president biden and congressman ryan face off. abc 7 will air that debate live. >>> stock market opens up in less than 30 minutes. this morning investors will be keeping a close eye on helmand province, -- on hp, st
debate. almost 60 million people watched mitt romney crush president obama last night. twitter blew up, biggest political night ever. so what did you guys think? let's start it out. polling, you were excited last night? >> it was great. twitter was going crazy. honestly, mitt romney made president obama look silly and small. he was great. mitt romney was. president obama was bumbling. he looked like he didn't want to be there. we heard all those analogies today. but i found it interesting that michael moore blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been pain
moments of the debate came when mitt romney made a reference to sesame street. >> i am not going to keep on spending money to bar from chinaborrow from china. romney's remarks sparked more comments on twitter than his nomination acceptance speech at the g-o-p convention. they also created the hashtag save big bird. >> two-thirds of those who watched the debate believe romney is the winner. nearly half of those polls say the debate did not make them more likely to vote for either candidate. 45 percent say they're now more likely to vote for romney. >> he joked about last night's debate. saying he meant a very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. >>the real mitt romney has been running around for the last year promising five trillion dollars in tax cuts to pay for the welfarealthy. the real mitt romney said we do not need anymore teachers. >> good afternoon. a 79% of members voted in favor of this contract. the highest approval rating of a contract in the union's history. this vote shows overwhelming recognition by members. it is a victory for students community and the teacher
last night's debate could affect today's conversations. >> reporter: republican mitt romney may have secured exactly what he needed out of this first presidential debate, a fresh look for undecided voters. >> he laid out a very clear choice and a big choice. that's what this election is about. >> reporter: the candidates sparred on key issues this election, taxes, job growth and medicare. >> i'd rather have a private plan. i'd just as soon not have the government telling me what kind of health care i can have. >> every study has shown that medicare has lowered administrative costs than private insurance does which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. and private insurers have to make a profit. >> reporter: even advisers to president obama admit romney did well. >> i give him credit for a strong performance. >> reporter: the debate was one of the most substantive in recent history. now democrats hope to seize on the details to attack romney moving forward. >> are we going to hold the governor accountable for his fraudulent positions? yes, we're going to do that. >> repor
of the efficiency presidential debate. a cnn poll of 430 people who watched the debate showed 67% thought romney won compared to 25% who thought president obama won. the cbs news poll of undecided voters found 46% siding with romney, 22% for mr. obama. and 32% saying it was a tie. >>> here is some of what both the president and romney said during last night's debate. >> i like the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> over the last two years healthcare premiums have gone up it is true but they have done up slower than ape time in the last 50 years. >> i put forward a specific 4 trillion dollar deficit reduction plan. >> my number 1 principal is there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only effect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class, it is math. >> i like big bird and you too, but i am not going to keep borrowing money from china t
night debate. a look at romney's plan. what gets cut and where the revenue would come from. lori: let take a look at metals like we do every day at this time. silver is also gaining ground. copper is flat. i think people feeling better about the economy. gold is a precious metal trade. we will be back with more after this. ♪ ♪ melissa: one of the hottest topics in last night's debate was taxes. especially that romney's plans. he has answered some of his critics giving other details of his plans. rich edson is in washington with more on this story. this was one of the big talking point last night for sure. >> yes, it really was. he is leaving most of the details of to congress. predicting what it would actually do. here is what we do know, romney reduces taxes by cutting marginal rates by 20%. repealing the amt. the tax policy center says all that means is tax cuts of $480 billion in the year 2015. the obama campaign will divide that by ten and there is a $5 trillion tax cut figure over the next decade the president repeatedly cited during the debate. that is misleading. romney say
señor presidente. >>> quiero agradecer a ti y el gobernador romney fue un debate maravilloso y agradezco mucho y quiero dar las gracias a la u. de denver también. sabes, hace 4 años, nosotros pasamos a través de una crisis drástica, y sin embargo, mi fe y confianza en el futuro estadounidense no ha menguado es debido a su pueblo. la mujer que conocí que iba a volver a estudiar quería opiniones raro a su hija y tiene una empleo de su nueva capacitación que obtuvo porque la compañía de minnesota iba a tener sueldos y mejoras y cerezo arose de no quedar cesantes. sienten orgullo al construir el mejor auto del mundo. no por lo que reciben de paga si no el sentido de orgullo de ayudar a desarrollar estados unidos. y la pregunta es cómo fortalecemos las fuerzas lo que tratamos de hacer y propongo ahora para mejorar el sistema educativo, y sacar brechas y launs de las compañías. y cerrando la brecha del déficit de manera responsable para poder invertir en el futuro. todas esas cosas diseñadas para ceros aronos que el pueblo estadounidense sus sueños, su determinación, su fortale
. >> susie: you know, tonight obviously in the debate president obama and governor romney will be talking about the job market do. you expect them to give any kind of plan to jolt the labor market and to get that unemployment rate down drastically? >> i think both candidates are likely to be somewhat vague in their discussion of proposals to great jobs. if i were asking the question, i think the one that i with like to hear answered most would be, what are you going to do about the approaching fiscal cliff if we go over the fiscal cliff, if we plunge over the highest bluff along the fiscal cliff, it's very likely the economy will fall into recession and the unemployment rate instead of being 8 at the end of next year will be above 9. so the first thing that any elected official needs to do in 2013 is prevent job losses by doing something about the fiscal cliff. >> susie: are you predicting a recession? >> no, we're not. we do think that in a crisis environment at the 11th hour, some sort of arrangement will be made that will delay the fiscal contraction that's on the books now. so that th
place. mitt romney's comment about big bird and pbs are ruffling some feathers he told anchor and debate moderator that he would cut federal funding for pbs which would put the casts of sesame workers out of work. they voiced support for big bird. some even created i should say a facebook page called big bird from president. at 4:37 we'll take a quick break. we've got much more straight ahead, so stick around. we've got a lot to show you as you make your approach westbound traffic light as you would expect at this very hour. >> we're back at 4:239. you can see investigators are still here they brought out their mobile command here. this murder took place at around 12:30 in the morning so about four hours ago. now some group of men were here. we're not sure if they lived there or happened to hang out here late last night, all of a sudden shots rang out. we do know that the person who was shot died at the scene. it's early on in the investigation but the police believe this might possibly be gang related. now, it's been a very busy night for homicide investigators because four hours before
